Book Overview: Sauron Defeated

The final part of The History of The Lord of the RingsSauron Defeated: The End Of The Third Age is J.R.R. Tolkien's enthralling account of the writing of the Book of the Century which contains many additional scenes and includes the unpublished Epilogue in its entirety.

In the first section of Sauron Defeated Christopher Tolkien completes his fascinating study of The Lord of the Rings. Beginning with Sam's rescue of Frodo from the Tower of Cirith Ungol, and giving a very different account of the Scouring of the Shire, this section ends with versions of the hitherto unpublished Epilogue, in which, years after the departure of Bilbo and Frodo from the Grey Havens, Sam attempts to answer his children's questions.

The second section is an edition of The Notion Club Papers. These mysterious papers, discovered in the early years of the twenty-first century, report the discussions of an Oxford club in the years 1986-7, in which after a number of topics, the centre of interest turns to the legend of Atlantis, the strange communications received by other members of the club from the past, and the violent irruption of the legend into the North-west of Europe.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, known universally as J.R.R. Tolkien, was a definitive figure in 20th-century literature, molding the fantasy genre with his legendary Middle-Earth tales. Born in South Africa in 1892 and later relocating to England, Tolkien's scholarly proficiency in languages led to a respected career in academia at Oxford University, where he specialized in English language and literature. However, it was his exceptional prowess as a writer and creator of intricate, richly detailed imaginary worlds that most indelibly marked his name in the annals of literary history. Tolkien's iconic works, most notably "The Hobbit" (1937) and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy (1954-1955), have captivated and inspired millions. These works, profoundly influenced by Tolkien's linguistic proficiency, interest in mythology, and experiences in World War I, feature a meticulous construction of character, setting, and language. They burst with a rich tapestry of high fantasy populated by hobbits, elves, wizards, and dark lords, creating a mythical universe beloved by countless readers. Despite passing away in 1973, Tolkien's literary legacy endures. His timeless tales remain instrumental in shaping fantasy literature, influencing a multitude of authors in the genre. Immortalized in myriad adaptations, including blockbuster movies, his fantastical worlds continue to stir the imagination of enthusiasts all over the globe, making J.R.R. Tolkien a truly incomparable figure in the literary world.
